WHEN IS IT NEEDED?

COSTS

PAYING FOR CARE

Due to the high nursing home costs in Pittsburgh, patients typically utilize their Medicare or Medicaid benefits. Medicare or Medicaid will only pay for care services provided by certified nursing home facilities for a limited amount of time typically for 90 days.

However, for those patients who do not qualify for these government health programs, private insurance or private funds are used. Some sources may include the patient’s retirement savings, help from family members or long term care insurance. If none if these are available, it’s best to contact Medicare (www.medicare.gov) or Pennsylvania’s Office of Long-Term Living, Bureau of Provider Support, Division of Licensing for more options.
